This study aims to produce teaching materials for science content based on the CDT model that are valid for improving the creative thinking skills of fifth grade elementary school students. Teaching materials were developed using the 4-D model developed by Thiagarajan, et al (1974) which includes define, design, develop, and disseminate stages. The research instrument used was a teaching material validation sheet. The data analysis used is percentage. The results of the study revealed that the CDT-based science teaching materials had fulfilled the validity aspect because they had gone through the validation stage from the validator with an assessment based on 3 aspects, namely the content/material quality aspect on the material suitability indicator with basic competence obtaining an average percentage of 91%, material accuracy obtaining a percentage 89%, stimulating curiosity 100%, creative thinking tools 90%, use of the term symbol or icon in the material 93%, material presentation techniques 90%, learning support and presentation 95 %. In the aspect of design quality, the indicator size of teaching materials obtains a percentage of 87%, the cover design of teaching materials obtains a percentage of 93%, and the design of the contents of teaching materials 90%. In the aspect of language quality, the use of the term symbol or icon gets a percentage of 100% and conformity with language rules gets a percentage of 93%. Teaching materials developed can improve creative thinking skills based on validation from validators who have obtained valid criteria.
